Pretty in Pink Style Showdown: Rihanna vs. Tyra Banks (POLL)
As one of Time magazine's most influential people, Rihanna toned down her usually controversial style and was a vision in pink, donning an '80s prom frock to the Time 100 gala in New York City on Tuesday. The "We Found Love" singer looked very girly in a bright pink Vivienne Westwood gown.
Pink seemed to be the color of the night, with fellow honoree Tyra Banks stepping out in a gorgeous pink Marchesa gown. Looking strikingly similar to RiRi, the America's Next Top Model host got quite a surprise when fans outside the venue accidentally confused her for the Barbadian babe.
"Fans started going crazy and were yelling, 'You look great Rihanna!' Tyra took it in stride but definitely let them know they had mistaken identities," an onlooker tells Celebuzz.
Despite the mix-up, both gals looked fabulous. So who wore the pretty in pink style best: Rihanna or Tyra? Vote in the poll and play fashion critic in the comments.
Inside the event, Rihanna performed and entertained the nominees, who included Kristen Wiig, Claire Danes, Hillary Clinton, Louis CK and Amy Poehler.
She got quite a surprise when her mom decided to attend and proceeded to discuss her daughter's headline-making alleged fling with Ashton Kutcher. A cringing Rihanna told fans of her embarrassment, tweeting:
Well....2nt consisted of us singing Bob Marley, drinkin Vintage Scotch, and my mom thinkin a joke abt Kutcher was appropriate! #Thxtime100
